3.75 years and 49K miles the only problem has been the rear shocks. I'd get another one.

80,000 miles and almost 5 years of ownership report

Well heres my 4 years and 9 months report. Car has 80,000 as of today. Besides warped rotors at 24K miles there hasnít been any problems. I have changed fluids at recommended intervals. Breaks have been done twice. Tires have been replaced once. The only modifications are:
  • tinted windows
  • vent visors
  • S-VCM to deactivate the pesky VCM II
The truck has been a pleasure to own!

Sure, no problem I'll explain. My experience with VCM in this car was very disappointing. The transmission had a really bad vibration when VCM engaged around 1500 RPM. VCM also messed with the transmission software and it was causing delayed shift downs from 2nd to 1st gear causing a thump or bump. All those issues have been eliminated since I deactivated the VCM.
